Curb Appeal (getting there)

I posted last week about Cape Cod style. http://coastalpines.blogspot.com/2011/06/cape-love.html. Well here is ours...so you can see that we need a pop of color.As previously stated...the bones are great, just need some pizazz. My wishlist would include some colorful canopies, shutters on the lower windows or window boxes overflowing with colorful flowers and greenery on the dormer windows. All in time....

...it's MUCH improved from the place we purchased in 2009. Gone is the chartruese lawn(weeds), outdated bay windows (one of which had lovely faux stained-glass blue flowers) and the shore-tacky piers by the street and front door.
Bush overhaul will come next year...In the meantime, I've added lots of sea grasses and textural perrenials. http://coastalpines.blogspot.com/2011/05/glimpse-of-our-weekend.html. Updates on the morning glories (doing fabulous!!) shortly :)
Urns & ferns. The white plastic urns will get rehabbed over the next couple of weeks; painted black and replanted. I still have the Easter purple & golden flower theme in them, I will likely replace with red for more shots of color.
Also in the future...more cape-appropriate lighting. I love suggestion, so please if you stumble upon this post, please share!! xoxo Traci
